Im on the board!!!

I am a board member for the American Society of Media Photographers Chicago Midwest Chapter. I would go to ASMP board meetings while I was in college to network, learn whats going on, and most importantly for free pizza and pop ( come on, I was in college) and now I am on the board. I am really excited about it, but of course I am also nervous. My voice and opinion goes into the outcome of what our chapter of ASMP does. On top of my being a board member I am also the Chair of the Gallery Committee for Chicago working with photographer Marie Phillips as the Gallery Committee. Its overwhelming but you know what I am ready for this challenge, all things happen for a reason and I am super excited.

So get involved!! If you are in Chicago or Wisconsin, you should come and check out a meeting. Right now Marie and I are in the planning stages of everything but we really hope to have some super great events.

PLS Mag: The Green Issue

I was given the awesome opportunity to photograph the Green Issue for PLS Mag. This editorial shoot by far top five of my favorites to photograph. The Model Moji and stylist Amanda Hartmann was very laid back and cool. Its always refreshing and relaxing to work on fun projects with fun and creative people that are just as laid back and care free as you.

The new issue of PLS Magazine is out and Yours truly photographed the fashion layout.
